2016 has seen political turmoil and we, as the Young Greens, have started a crowdfunder. This money will be ringfenced for the 2017 council elections. We need your support so Young Greens across England and Wales can contest in their respective council seats.
Recent months have shown the clear need for more green representatives; from our exit from the European Union to the scrapping of the department of energy and climate change, now is the time to ensure we can protect the most vulnerable in our society.
The Young Greens need to ensure that we are in the strongest position to do this, and with key council elections occurring in 2017, we need your help!
With the funds from this crowdfunder the Young Greens will:
- Host action days in areas with the strongest chance of electing more Green representatives or where there are Young Green candidates
- Train up Young Greens to become councillors in waiting, through initiatives like our upcoming Get Elected! Training day and the 30 under 30 scheme
- Support current Young Green Councillors with their campaigns through promotional work
